Course material:

Hillier and Lieberman: "Introduction to Operations Research", 10th edition.
Please note, the 10th edition came 2014 and is the one that is sold at the KTH bookshop. You may use eearlier versions, the reading instructions are for the 9th and 10th editions.

We have a pdf booklet with exercises (and solutions) that is mainly based on old exams, "Exercises in Systems Engineering, 2014."
It is available for registered students at Bilda.
Additional material (manuscripts) will be available on the homepage.
Matlab projects/home assignments will be handed out/published on this page during the course.
